"The first rule of YxYY is you don't schedule YxYY." — DJ GoodWord
Ann VThe most important part of YxYY is that all you fascinating nerds gather together to enjoy excellent conversation and collaboration with one another. Beyond that, we ask that there be no pre-published schedules. You can pre-plan, but wait to announce the date/time until a little before it happens via the YxYY app. This creative constraint encourages serendipity at the event by encouraging you to be present, rather than showing up with your schedule already packed.
If you'd like to host a gathering or session, be it a miracleberry tasting, a Settlers of Catan tournament, or a comic book discussion group, post it below! This is a way for folks to get excited about your idea, and for collaborations to happen. You can also post on the Facebook group to gauge interest or invite early discussion/brainstorming.
Amy MIf your session requires a gathering space, let us know. Here's information on available spaces at the Ace. Please fill out this form if you need to reserve a space for your project or session or if youhave any equipment needs that the hotel may be able to acommodate. We can't guarantee that we can provide the equipment but we'll see what we can do.Amy Muller will be in touch.
YxYY is DIY & BIBO (brilliance in/brilliance out). You could check last year's wiki for ideas, but we're confident y'all will make this your own! Give each project a heading and a sentence or 5. Or feel free to link out to a new page (which you can create on the fly by typing an @ sign).

Part of our culture at YxYY is that, aside from a few anchor activities (see schedule & map) [change to 2017 version when available]there are no pre-published schedules. The goal is to be present & discover the fun as it happens around you, rather than showing up with your whole weekend already planned.
YxYYers are encouraged to invite people to their fun however you wish! If you have a discussion you’d like to start, a talk you’d like to give, or a karaoke competition you’d like to instigate, feel free to announce it on the app or however you wish (pirate flag, bullhorn, whisper chain)!
Why yes, it is! If you are unaccustomed to the balmy temps of Palm Springs in the summer, please take care of yourself. This means drinking more water than you think you need (cocktails do not count), cooling off in the pool, or inside at the ACE, and reapplying sunscreen and/or wearing a hat. Try to avoid being that-dude-who-went-to-the-ER-during-YxYY, m’kay?
To get started adding to the 2017 YxYY Wiki, be sure to click "Add to Collection" in the top right corner (by hovering over the "..." or the "YXYY005" label) and add your new page to the YxYY005 Collection.
Hillary HEachproject can have its own page, or just a paragraph in the master list. Be sure to put your name next to it, and you can use the @ symbol to tag/recruit people. Hashtags work to clump together ideas, too.
The Ace Hotel has a terrific restaurant on property called King's Highway. You'll be able to order by the pool and get room service. You can also eat in the restaurant, which will be open to the public as well (so be sure to wear your YxYY wristband at all times and if you're staying at the Ace it helps to charge it to your room.) They officially don't allow outside food on property but they're chill with our event with regard to what takes place in rooms. By the pool, though, they will not want outside food/drinks other than water bottles. But no glass containers!
